Zoe and Beans: The Magic Hoop

(2 reviews with an average rating of 4 out of 5)

Publisher: Macmillan Childrens Books

The second of Zoe and Beans’ adventures reminds readers that we are often better off as we are rather than what we think we might like to have or be.

When Zoe tries to encourage her dog Beans to jump through a hoop by throwing one of his favourite sweets through, they are amazed to find he has transformed into a rabbit. She tempts him through many times, and he changes into a mouse, a crocodile and an elephant, which, of course, can’t get back through the magic hoop. However by overeating he snaps the hoop and reappears as a dog.

A winning Inkpen collaboration, with a childlike sense of humour (especially about poos), and several more adventures to come.
